Item Description...
Literary criticism has developed as one of the most important and evocative methods for interpreting biblical narratives. John Petersen delves deeply into three stories of women in the Hebrew Bible (Hannah, Deborah, and Tamar) and explores issues of reading character, plot, and point of view. By addressing these concepts in depth and with subtlety, he is able to show how human experience is depicted using a variety of structuring, focusing, and interpretive devices. Beyond analyzing these narratives, he teaches readers how to get more out of every biblical story they read.

Publishers Description
In this literary approach to biblical stories for the modern reader, Petersen's study examines the dynamics of biblical narrative, employing workable methods for reading accounts of women's lives. Separate chapters analyze the stories of Hannah, Deborah, and Tamar (daughter-in-law of Judah), brilliant examples of sophisticated literary artistry. By unpacking the techniques and strategies used to construct character, point of view, and plot narrative analysis, Reading Women's Stories: Female Characters in the Hebrew Bible presents protagonists who become real people struggling with real problems. These moving and inspiring women respond to the issues confronting them and their families, becoming models of commitment and images of sensitivity and courage. Beyond analyzing these narratives, he teaches readers how to get more out of every biblical story they read.
